    Ok. Need your opinions on these cards. No hidden flaws, both are psa graded, solid grades. Very similar looking cards but which card do you guys think is the higher grade?



    A

      CARD A

        Raw, I’d trade the first for the second. But PSA is obsessed with centring so the first is probably higher.

          I rather have B, so A is probably graded higher

            We are splitting hairs here really, the fact that PSA graded them differently tells you something about the grading business in general!

                Card A is a Psa 8. It's a beautiful card but to me, 2 of the corners look like they have a tiny bit of rounding, atleast in the scan, and there is a print dot on his face.

                  Card B is a freshly graded Psa 7. I felt it deserved an 8, and not because it's mine

                      I showed up late and saw the results, but I was thinking the same thing, Jim. The first card had a hint of wear on the top corners and had the print dot on his face. I prefer the 2nd one.

                        PSA doesn’t care about print...plain and simple. But is there some surface wear on yours (brown on the right side) or is that the scan?

                        One grader would probably call it an 8, another a 7, and a third a 6. That’s the grading game...

                          If I was a grader and based on what I see:
                          I would grade card A at 7.5, because it is very well centered, has vibrant colors, but yes it is lightly touched at the corners.
                          I would grade card B at 7 because it is a little off centered top to Bottom, looks like the colors are lighter, has a small "stain" in the right border at the knee level.

                            I'm definitely going scanner shopping this week.

                              Also late to the game. I would have guessed B, but I am more of a corner junkie. Top right of the 8 looks a little touched to me.

                              Plus the second example is bigger, so I like the bigger card...

                                I haven't ever heard that phrase before, but I'm with you on being a "corner junkie." If a card is slightly off center, then that's the way it came out of the pack, but the corners tell you how well it has been taken care of over the years.

                                I'm with you earl. Corner's are the ticket. Centering up to 75/25 for me. Other's put centering at the front.
